Social security legislation has become more complex in recent years. Executive bodies such as the UWV make decisions that directly affect people.
Employers are also involved in social security issues, for example because of (long-term) sick employees, because they are self-risk carriers for the WIA, or because they want to guarantee the WW rights of an employee in the case of dismissal as much as possible. We are happy to advise employers on the aspects that need to be taken into account.
From 1 January 2016, the maximum WW duration will be gradually shortened (from 38 to 24 months) and the WW build-up will be delayed (in the first ten years of employment one month of WW per working year, then half a month of WW per working year). Finally, after six months of unemployment, an unemployed person will have to accept all work. If a lower wage results from this work, the unemployed person may be entitled to a (partial) WW benefit.
In short, employers also have to deal with social security law such as the WW, the ZW and the WIA. We can advise employers on all legal and practical aspects related to unemployment, illness, pregnancy and long-term incapacity for work of your employee.
